What I Don't Make For Dinner

I just couldn't resist posting this:

Pumpkin Jello

1 small box lemon gelatin
1 cup hot water
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pie mix)
1 small container Cool Whip
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water; add sugar and spice.
Add pumpkin, mixing well. Chill until slightly thickened.
Fold in Cool Whip and nuts. Pour into
mold or bowl and refrigerate until firm

Hideous, eh?

  1. The jello-pumpkin concept is scary enough--but having grown up in the '70s, I have a dislike bordering on absolute fear of Cool Whip. Please, no.

    (In that same decade, my mom used to make lime jello mixed with pineapple, walnuts, and cottage cheese. It did not look so great, but we actually liked it.)
